    SHINE a LIGHT on FOOD ALLERGIES

    Food Allergy Awareness Week May 13-19, 2018

    Created in 1998 by the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network, now FARE, Food Allergy Awareness Week is honored each May to shine a spotlight on the seriousness of food allergies. By increasing awareness, we can encourage respect, promote safety, and improve the quality of life for the 15 million Americans with food allergies, including all those at risk for life-threatening anaphylaxis.

    For more information visit www.foodallergy.org

    In honor of National Food Allergy Awareness week, Pierce students will be attending an assembly on Friday, May 19th, performed by food allergy educator Kyle Dine. Have your child wear TEAL to support food allergy awareness!

    Kyle Dine - A Trusted educator with a twist.

    Kyle Dine performs food allergy awareness assemblies for elementary schools across North America. His brand of fun and educational performances uses music, puppets and games to engage audiences with age-appropriate content.  He has visited over 750 schools to spread his message of inclusion, understanding and empathy.
